There's music all over Milwaukee – with even more to come thanks to all the new potential venues coming in the near future. It's music to our ears – but it can be murder to one's mind to try and keep track of who's playing when where, only to find out that you just missed your new favorite band two nights ago.

To make sure live show FOMO doesn't happen to you, here's a guide to concerts coming to Milwaukee this month – from the city's biggest venues to its smaller gems, from huge stadium acts to intimate sets, from famous faces to unknowns on the way there, from ear-rattling rock shows to mind-massaging classical performances. In this month's case, summer may be here with all the outdoor music series and festivals we love – but don't forget about the city's indoor stages as well, bringing in loads of local acts; comedy favorites Eddie Griffin, Neil Hamburger and Michael Ian Black; a whole festival of metal music; and much more.

Sound good? Well, that's just the opening act: Here's the full setlist of concerts coming to Brew City stages in May. (For more on specific show times, tickets and additional info, visit the venues' respective websites linked in each listing.)

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
